The old school in me loves Black and White. I started with a Yashica and Pentax 35mm, and a Yashica 124 medium format. Which meant using a lot of B&W film because of cost.
Now I use a series of presets and filters that match the old film results. Pretty accurately too I might add.
The texture from branches and leaves made me try this in B&W. Personally I struggle with wildlife in this format. But I keep practicing.
